I came too late.  9 years late.  Jimmy Wong’s Golden Dragon was remodeled in 2006 and renamed Asian Bistro.  I was hoping to try some old school Chinese food but now it’s a modern Thai place.

Fried potstickers had a crunchy shell and delicious chicken filling.  A bit smaller than Khan’s Cave potstickers but with a similiar flavor.

Won ton soup with duck.  I chose the duck broth and it had a delicious duck flavor.  Egg noodles had a good flavor whick complimented the duck broth.  Won tons were made with shrimp and had an excellent mix of flavor from the thin wrapper and shrimp.  This dish goes in my top 5 list of won ton noodle soups in San Diego.
BBQ chicken was tender and had a nice smoky flavor and a little bit of a spicy flavor.

Mango desert had texture like jello and a sweet mango flavor.

I didn’t find what I was looking for but there are some finely crafted dishes here.  🙂

    The neon sign sure is pretty!

  2. Top 5 wonton soup in SD?! We passed by this restaurant some weeks ago when we visited Tostadas. Do you think the wontons and dumplings are made in house? I love wonton soups and think the broth is an important component of that dish so might have to visit Jimmy Wong’s soon.

    1. I would guess they make them in house as there was that fresh won ton flavor. Broth was excellent. I go to Sam Woo alot and I noticed they prep their won tons daily during the slow times and Jimmy’s taste better to me. Having that delicious piece of duck really helps the broth too.
